Some time ago, I’ve watched the entire process of building a custom chopper from a scratch. I thought it could be mimicked with Lego brick, through a modular system where one universal frame can have a number of compliant modules attached to it. I’ve designed such a system, trying to keep it close to the original one, and in result it consisted of a frame, front and rear wheels, front suspensions, handlebars, engines, seats, exhausts, fuel tanks, rear suspensions and rear fenders. Though I’ve only built few modules of each type, it offered a substantial number of possible combinations, out of which I’ve only assembled five. Each version featured full independent suspension and a V2 piston engine driven by the rear wheel through a chain and a rubber band. Once more, mister Fluffy has been kind enough to honour me with his model’s skills. It is accurate to say that we did a nude session with one of the chopper’s versions 🙂

    Haha… I was too. This’d be a nice competition on Klocki, building (Technic-based, working) theme bikes. Like dragons, spider, whatnot, I guess there’s a lot of stuff on Bricklink! 😀
